Concertmaster/first violinist Margaret Batjer will lead the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra from her chair during the Jan. 20 concert at the Alex Theatre, giving maestro Jeffrey Kahane the night off. Batjer opens the concert with Arvo Part's "Fratres" (Latin for "brethren") leading from the first chair and performing the violin solo, said Ruth L. Eliel, executive director of the orchestra. The concertmaster is the most critical position in an orchestra, even when there is a conductor, she said, because they are the go-between for the conductor and the orchestra, Eliel said.

Paul Andersen There is an old saying that good things will come to those who wait. If there is any truth to that, then fans of the Glendale Symphony Orchestra should witness the show of a lifetime this Saturday evening at The Alex Theatre when the orchestra finally concludes its 79th season with a program titled "America the Beautiful." Originally scheduled in March, the concert was postponed due to a shortfall in funding. Now, after a pair of benefit concerts and a slight change in programming, the show will go on, to quote another old cliche.

The "Daily Idol" talent competition kicked off with a screaming-guitar rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner" immediately followed by a classical piano concerto. It was a show of contrasts: From Daily High School staff members jamming on old rock 'n' roll standards to students dancing to, or singing, thunderous rap songs. All of Daily's 290 students and the staff gathered at First United Methodist Church on Thursday for the school's first talent contest. "We had a student chair suggest it be based on 'American Idol' to showcase student talent like they do at comprehensive high schools," said Assistant Principal Carmen Labrecque, who served as one of the judges.

An outstanding performance by 17-year-old violin soloist Ani Bukujian was the highlight of the Glendale Youth Orchestra’s concert on March 13 at the Alex Theatre in Glendale. Fronting an orchestra of 31 musicians ranging from 11 to 18 years of age, Ani played the first movement of Tchaikovsky’s “Violin Concerto in D,” Opus 35, which is a challenging selection for violin and orchestra. Orchestra conductor Brad Keimach began his welcome with the remark, “Thanks for coming to hear my kids.” He then explained that this concerto created all the drama and theatrics associated with such familiar Tchaikovsky works as “Swan Lake” and the opera “Eugene Onegin.” Taking the podium, he led Ani and “his kids” into a professional performance on a par with recognized seasoned orchestras.

When pianist Daphne Kan, 14, started to learn the Mozart Piano Concerto No. 17 last summer, she focused on the second and third movements. She was gearing up for an upcoming piano concert competition in January — the winner of which would get the rare chance to perform the piece with the Glendale Youth Orchestra at the Alex Theatre. And she knew that the judges usually select three students to perform one movement each. By learning two movements, she was increasing her chances of winning.
